[applause] smart people who study this kind of thing tallis that anger -- tell us that anger is usually a mask for fear. why do the citizens of the greatest nation on earth have reason to be fearful? it is because we love our country. we love the first principles of liberty and opportunity. we love the american dream. we want it for ourselves and for our children. this is the promised land. this is the place that people have always come to buy land, by sea, by hook or by crook. when people living under tyrants are secretly planning their escape, this land is the preferred destination.

it was in this building that we were building a fan base. i still remember that day. it was a picture of what america is about. you have people from all different walks of life coming together. everybody was working hard. everybody knew there was a challenge coming. everybody was there because they figured if we were all working together then there was the reason why we cannot handle this. we had handled things before. that is the american spirit on display that is this theory -- spirit of quincy and illinois. it is good to be reminded that and come back to spend time with you. we spent some time in iowa and missouri and now back here. yay., misery. how about i attaci left? we are in illinois. over the last couple of days we have talked to workers who are busy building when a blaze for these wind turbines and by a few plants, family and small- business owners trying to navigate through tough economy and talk to farmers about what is happening. because it is folks like pawlenty live in towns like quincy and give america its heartbeat, that is why it is so important. if this sounds like this were worki

by and waiting. >> lama hasan in london this morning. thanks, lama. >>> later on "good morning america," we take a closer look at whether there is still a doing from that big volcano. >>> back here at home, big banks are gearing up for a battle over more government regulation. president obama and congressional lawmakers appear close to an agreement on a bill that would regulate the financial industry. t.j. winick is joining us from washington with the latest. good morning, t.j. >> reporter: good morning. the president is determined to pass financial reform. and we're seeing the battle take shape on wall street and on capitol hill. when it comes to pushing financial reforms for wall street, the president sounds ready for a showdown. >> what we've seen is an army of industry lobbyists, from wall street, descending on capitol hill. if these folks want a fight, it's a fight i'm ready to have. >> reporter: the white house is focused on derivatives. essentially bets between power players on wall street and around the world, whether certain businesses will succeed or fail. >> part of what led to this c
piece in the "washington post" today. how america became a secular socialist machine. >> i think that is what the country is. the country is still a center right majority. if you look at washington, you talked about that a second ago, with harry reid. the health bill wasn't the first time reid decided to be totally partisan. the stimulus was. the reason i call it a machine, if you can get $787 billion out of congress, with no elected official having read the bill, that's not representative democracy. that's a machine. it's like chicago. when you watch how reid operates, anytime he has a choice between being left wing machine boss or participated in government, he picks being the left wing machine boss. secular and socialist are the other two words. i wrote in this part in reaction to colleague of mine who seemed surprise we used the word. if you look at the judges that obama is nominating, they tend to be rigid, anti-religious secularists. if you look at obama's policies we currently own most of general motors and own most of chrysler. aig is deeply in debt to the government. the
our viewers think about this. a question today is do you think america has fallen behind as we've -- joe has just said? we have. why do you think it's true when it comes to protecting the environment. e-mail us by logging on to cnn.com/hln and we're going to be checking out your views a little bit later. >>> now, take charge of your career. if you've been out of work for a few months and you do find a job, you are probably thrilled. good for you. but starting any new job is going to be hard and it's even harder after a long lay-off, so here's how to make a successful reentry back into the work force. "the wall street journal" says, one, read up about your industry. have your boss describe your job very specifically so you can get as ready as possible. then a few day s before your first day, go do a test run. see how long it's going to get you to shower, to get there, whether it's finding your way on the road or taking a subway so you're going to be on time and ready and confident on your first day. now, this one may be the hardest. don't make the same mistakes twice. now, maybe
. this is not the sort of stuff that will fly with most americans out there. 20% of america, maybe half the republican party, perhaps. but not most americans. this isn't going to get job done in 2012 that's for sure. >> ron, i think once you investigate it for antiamericanism i think that you are on her list. here's michel bachmann on president obama on his nuclear pm policy. i'm confounded. since ronald reagan was one the great ideologist about getting rid of nuclear weapons in this war. let's listen to michelle bachmann. >> we found out that the president said that he was going to change the united states' strategy on dealing with nuclear weaponry, did this shock everyone? so if in fact there is a nation who is compliant with all the rules ahead of time and complied the united nations on nuclear proliferation, if they fire against the united states, a biological weapon, a chemical weapon, or maybe a cyberattack, well, then we weren't going to be firing back with nuclear weapons. >> i don't get that. i guess i'm waiting for the applause line there. but i guess i never thought of using nuclear weapons
into america. they saw a great opportunity through mexico. the overland route took them by monterey. here we are with all breaking loose and everybody is scared. you have a lot of people who are totally innocent and looking for safe haven and they are worried about others because we are arming the other side. the mexican army and police are dying every day to keep the drugs from coming and the bad guys come over here and get somebody to go buy some assault weapons because we did not institute the assault weapons ban. . . the real reason this anti- immigrant sentiment -- look at the numbers -- white male factory workers without a college degree got killed in the last decade. manson -- manon -- men in terms of wages killed even worse than women did. the economic downturn was basically on white male high- school graduates and women high school graphics with a couple of years of college that just got hit in the economy. but they will get more jobs with the economy grow. their taxes were be lower. the changes we will have to make will be slightly less draconian if you have more people contributin

are attacking the united states of america? >> well, but let's look at what happened with regard to the detroit bomber. abduabsenteeism umar farouk abdulmutallab. they had the present of mind, given their knowledge of law, to understand that in that initial interaction, they did not have to give him his miranda warnings and the information they got from him can be used in a trial against him under the public safety exception, and -- >> well, i don't know if public safety exception goes to 50 minutes. have you had any case that's ever gone that long? >> oh, i think -- >> where you say to somebody, do you have a gun. >> oh -- >> do you have a bomb, but after a while, that exception ends. >> well, i'm going to say as a former judge, given my experience, given that set of facts, i would think that the government has acted appropriately here and statements from that gentleman would be admissible in a trial. >> well, i would just say that it would be -- the defense lawyer would make that point, i'm sure. >> oh, i'm sure they would, but they would lose in holder's court. >> this is really significant.

're going to continue to focus on bringing jobs back to america and to our people. i yield back. mr. cantor: i thank the gentleman. madam speaker, i would say this. always the gentleman likes to talk about the prior administration, and i would just like to point out that during the prior administration, the last two years of that, his party was in control of congress and certainly if we look at the numbers, did contribute to some of the problem that -- mr. hoyer: would the gentleman yield on that issue? mr. cantor: i'm not ready to yield yet, madam speaker. i would say there's plenty of blame to go around. but what we're trying to do is learn from mistakes that have taken place and go forward in a constructive manner. it's my sense that this nation is at a crossroads. we have serious challenges facing this country and last thursday was congress' deadline for passing a budget. and it is my strong belief that we must act and the gentleman indicates that we are going to act, but because of the critical nature of the challenges that we face, madam speaker, i believe that we've got three reasons
believe my product was proper. >> reporter: in an interview to air on "good morning america," blankfein refused to say that goldman is being singled out. >> we surely aren't the only financial firm. and i think, in most of these markets, we were not the largest or even a large participant, compared to others. so, i can wish that the focus wasn't so disproportionately on us. but i'm not making any claims of unfairness. >> reporter: democrats had hoped that hearing would help them move ahead with financial reform. but with no republican support right now, the gop blocked a vote in the senate for the second-straight day. jeremy and vinita? >> all right. t.j. winick in washington. thanks. >>> and we'll have more from claire shipman's interview with lloyd blankfein later on "good morning america." >>> some politics now. our new poll must caused some serious concern for members of congress. 57% of voters we asked said they will look around for someone else to vote for in november. that's the lowest level of incumbent support since 1994. asked what party they will support in the fall. 48% say
. >> allan, a comment? >> i will say something nice about you. your emphasis on faith in america renewing itself from the bottom up -- i think reagan had a very great faith in that. he came out of a small town, not far from my regular home. a faith in the common people and the ability of america's small platoons to still have the energy and ability to find a new interest to old problems -- find new answers to old problems. he had such a down-home understanding that americans have that capability. europeans really do not. togo -- alex to don't build -- when the british see a problem -- when the americans see a problem, they create a committee to solve it. there is still an element of america that reagan had a strong faith and confidence in. >> hardley? >> he would put us in touch with primary things that will not be extinguished. he had a remarkable knack to speaking to the multitude and making these principles accessible. we could go on about the teachings of freedom. a couple of points come back to me. the first inaugural address -- he had a fine passage speaking about the heroism of ord

and preventing another terrorism attack on america. we have learned from this tragedy by continuing to implement and refined the security standards and procedures developed since 1995. in fact, the dh announced new security standards for all federal buildings and our federal protective service announced the brought employment of a new rest of -- risk assessment tool to help inspectors keep more than 9000 facilities secure. we will continue to work day and night and we will continue to constantly ask ourselves if we are doing everything we can to prevent another terrorist attack but making prepared as part of our culture will ultimately draw on the innovation and civic spirit of the american people and our nation has never lacked for that. we cannot put a glass dome over our country. we cannot guarantee there will not be another attack. nobody can. we are a strong and resilient country. we can resolve that even a successful attack will not defeat our way of life. we can resolve that the oklahoma standard become the national standard.
